Old perv offends while on bail: gets bail again!

Police arrest 70-yr-old flasher at Dunedin fireworks display

What is it with the Judges down in Dunedin?

The ODT reports that one of their creepiest old pervs has again been locked up for offensive behaviour following an incident where he exposed his shrivelled old sausage to a poor unsuspecting eleven-year-old.

It seems that Uncle Pervy was attending a public fireworks display where the young girl was present. I’ll save you the details but let’s just say that his excuse when he finally gets to court will likely be, ‘when ya gotta go, ya gotta go’.

Fortunately, the wee lass very quickly dobbed the dirty old bugger into her Mum. The Police were called quick smart and he was confronted by a few people there. This caused the seventy-year-old man to attempt to flee in his car.

Is it Czech-mate in Labour’s immigration game?

Mike Hosking suggests that the Karel Sroubek case will haunt the Government.  I hope he is correct, as it appears to be both against natural justice and a bizarre decision. Quote.

The Karel Sroubek case is now the can of worms it was always going to be, with still no explanation outside of “trust me I know what I’m doing,” from Iain Lees-Galloway.

This thing is growing legs, because when it comes to issues like who gets to be here on a permanent basis, New Zealanders have an inherent sense of fairness.

Why a female paedophile is inside a men’s prison

When it comes to the latest politically correct and harmful fad of transgenderism, people who support it go either partially or full retard. Some police in England have hedged their bets and have only gone partially retard. It would be funny if it were not so serious. Breitbart reports

Police in England have raised eyebrows by describing a trans paedophile’s pre-transition crimes as having been committed by a “woman”.

[…] Cooper was still legally male at the time of the abuse, but court documents nevertheless refer to Cooper using “a part of her body, namely her finger” to abuse ‘her’ seven-year-old victim.

The prison sentence Cooper had received previously was for abduction and rape, when — as Gary — ‘she’ had posed as a 15-year-old girl in order to lure a 12-year-old into a meeting, which ended with the girl being taken to Cooper’s house and raped twice.

Cooper was also charged with grooming offences, making indecent photographs, and sexual activity with a minor after police discovered ‘she’ had had sex with a vulnerable 15-year-old.

Whaleoil transcription: Leighton Smith on Karel Sroubek

Leighton Smith

ZB 30 October 2018

Leighton

Identity secret, and then 2017; name suppression lifted, court of appeal rejects bid to quash conviction.

He has been in and out of the courts…police cells on various matters, but connected matters.

He is a crim; how he got off previous charges, like I say, I don’t know because we are not told. But there are usually reasons.

Some of them you might recall from time to time we have had discussions when people have got off on pure technicalities and it seems so frustrating simply because a policeman didn’t cross his “t” – or something similar.

So that to me tends to indicate that there is a strong possibility or at least a low possibility that the …[pause]…why else would the judge keep his name from being published? Why would he have name suppression under those circumstances with the importation of the materials and the manufacture.
I will leave it with you; at this particular point of time, the question being, and still is: do you accept the PM’s backing?

Although to me, it wasn’t a strong backing; she had no choice.

That was me reading between the lines and I was just following her suggestion “read between the lines” that she was backing Lees-Galloway’s decision.

Oh okay, one more chance. But just one more.

Much has already been written about the crim-hugging government’s decision to grant permanent residency to someone who is currently in prison for importing drugs.

Let’s recap, a Newspaper made this handy summary below in 2017.  Quote:

2003: Karel Sroubek flees Czech Republic as witness to a murder. Enters New Zealand with false passport in name of Jan Antolik. Later gains residency and represents his new country as a kickboxer.

2009: True identity discovered when Czech police contact their counterparts in NZ.

2010: Arrested with two Hells Angels on aggravated robbery and blackmail charges. Acquitted on all charges.

2011: Jury finds him guilty of using false passport and giving false details to Immigration officials. Arrested soon after as part of Operation Ark, a covert investigation into Ecstasy-like pills.

2012: Judge discharges him without conviction on false identity charges so Antolik is not automatically deported.

2014: Convicted of manufacturing Class-C drug from Operation Ark arrest. Conviction overturned but Crown abandons second trial. A few months later, arrested importing 5kg of MDMA, a Class-B controlled drug, used in Ecstasy.

2016: Convicted of importing MDMA and jailed for five years and nine months, but identity kept secret by sentencing judge.

2017: Name suppression lifted.  End of quote.

That’s an impressive rap sheet.

Barry Soper had this to say in a NewspaperQuote:

[…] Most fair-minded people would say he was given his get out of jail card and when the cell door’s finally unlocked on this one he should be sent packing.

Well that’s not going to happen. Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway has used “absolute discretion” to give Sroubek permanent residency when he’s released.

On this one, the public deserve and have a right to an explanation. As pressure grew for information, it looked as though the minister was buckling, telling us that in the public interest we deserve more information – and then going on to tell us virtually nothing.

Sroubek essentially has to behave himself for five years after he gets out of jail, this is his last chance Lees-Galloway assured us, telling the prisoner in a letter he trusts he’ll use the opportunity to make a positive contribution to New Zealand.  End of quote.

Has to behave himself for five years.  This is his last chance.  Why does he get one more chance?  I think it’s fair to say he has already done enough damage and used up far more chances than what he should have been given in the first place.

If he mucks up his ‘last chance’, what then?  Will he be immediately deported, no more questions asked?  This from Stuff: Quote:

If you fail to meet the conditions imposed on your resident visa, you may become liable for deportation under section 159 of the act.  Your case would then need to be considered againEnd of quote.

He may become liable for deportation.  His case would need to be considered again.

He may also get a slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket, and be given yet another ‘last chance’. Quote.

If Sroubek’s life is in danger should he be sent back to the Czech Republic, as has been hinted at, we should be told.

So he’s allowed to stay, although in prison because the Parole Board turned down his application to get out last month.  End of quote.

The parole board think he’s not fit to be released from prison, yet the immigration minister thinks he is a fit person to be a New Zealand resident.  How does that work?

There has to be a compelling reason for this decision.  It feels like something is being covered up, and the New Zealand public deserves an explanation.  It is essentially us that are being put at risk because Mr Sroubek is not being shipped off from our shores at the first opportunity.

Remember the American family who were forced to leave the country for not meeting financial visa requirements?  They ran a cafe and Bistro that made a profit and employed a number of people, yet they were declined a visa.

Then there was the South African family, whose son had a pre-existing kidney condition that they had offered to self-fund.

I know which of these three I would prefer to live next door to.

No Cindy, we don’t want to read between the lines, we want this ratbag gone

Jacinda Ardern wants us to all read between the lines on the decision to let a hardened violent and drug dealing criminal stay in New Zealand: Quote:

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern dropped hints on the “difficult” decision over convicted drug smuggler Karel Sroubek’s residency application.

Stuff reported on Sunday that Sroubek had been handed an unprecedented get-out-of-jail card in getting residency, instead of being deported after serving his prison sentence.

Residency granted to convicted drug smuggler

Credit: Carmen Bird

Labour and New Zealand first both campaigned on reducing immigration in New Zealand. The Labour party website tells us that ‘Migrants bring to New Zealand the skills we need to grow our economy and vibrant cultures that enrich our society’.  Sounds good, doesn’t it.  So it was very surprising to read on Stuff that a criminal scumbag currently in prison has been granted residency.  Quote:

A convicted drug smuggler has been handed an unprecedented get-out-of-jail card: instead of being deported after serving his prison sentence, the Government has granted him New Zealand residency.

Minister of Immigration Ian Lees-Galloway has made a special decision to grant the 37-year-old Czech national residency, even though he came to New Zealand on a false passport and is now serving time in Auckland South prison for importing drugs with a street value of $375,000.

Karel Sroubek​ fled to New Zealand with a friend’s passport in 2003. He claimed he was on the run from corrupt cops after witnessing a murder. Under the name Jan Antolik he built a new life as a businessman, a representative-level kickboxer, and a Hells Angels associate.

When the law caught up with him, he admitted his criminal ties in the Czech Republic – but he seemed unable to escape old habits with several brushes with NZ Police over the past 15 years.  End of quote.

Why? Why on earth have we granted residency to someone who clearly has no respect for the law ?  Quote:

[…] Lees-Galloway confirmed he had granted Sroubek residence subject to “significant conditions,” and after careful consideration of all information available to Immigration NZ.

He would not say why he had granted the drug smuggler residency, or reveal the conditions.

“For privacy and legal reasons, I am unable to disclose this information, or comment on specific details of the case,” he told Stuff.

“It’s not a decision I’ve taken lightly.”

The Minister of Immigration has “absolute discretion” to prevent deportation and grant residence – legally, such decisions cannot be applied for, the minister doesn’t have to consider any requests, and doesn’t need to explain their reasons.[…]

[…] The National Party on Sunday called on Lees-Galloway to explain what immigration spokesperson Michael Woodhouse said appeared to be “a disgraceful decision to grant residency to a violent gang associate convicted of importing drugs into New Zealand”.

“Mr Lees-Galloway will not say why he made the decision to grant residency, nor what the conditions of his residency are,” Woodhouse said.

“The information I have on this case does not come close to any threshold where special consideration should be given by the minister.”

Massey University’s Professor Paul Spoonley said he was scratching his head over why Sroubek was given residency.

Considering his serious crimes, and history with the law, if there were exceptional circumstances that warranted keeping here the public needed to be informed about what they were.

“There have to be important reasons why you would not deport, particularly when the person has proven not to be a good character,” he said.  End of quote.

I just don’t understand why we wouldn’t be deporting this guy at the first opportunity.  Tell me, Iain Lees-Galloway, how does this person enrich the culture of our country?

Labour’s crim-hugging extends to letting a lying, violent drug dealer get residency while still in prison

Iain Lees-Galloway should have stuck to filching press gallery booze, because he’s had a real ‘mare in allowing a lying, violent drug dealer get residency while still in prison: Quote:
